This is the fourth meeting between both players.

Iga Swiatek continued her red-hot form against American tennis player Bernarda Pera in the second round of the Italian Open 2024 on Thursday. Swiatek dominated the match from the first game and produced some rapid, fast aces and clever drop shots to advance through the next round.

The two-time Rome champion will face Yulia Putintseva in the third round of the ongoing Italian Open 2024 in Rome. Kazakh player Yulia Putintseva defeated lower-ranked player Sloane Stephens in RO64. 

The world No. 41, Putintseva, had started her campaign with a win over Italian tennis player Martina Trevisan. Putintseva won 6-3, 6-4 against Trevisan in the first round of the tournament.

Now, the Kazakhstan player has to be on her toes as she will face the “queen of clay” in the next round; therefore, she will try to take her best foot forward against the Pole.

The World No. 1 tennis player is on the hunt for her fourth WTA 1000 title this year. Swiatek outfoxed her second-round opponent, Bernarda Pera, in straight sets, as expected, 6-0, 6-2.

Her dominance shows her hunger for the title. She has already won the Italian title in 2021 and 2022. However, She withdrew in 2023 due to injury.

When we talk about the Kazakh tennis player, she started her 2024 season at the ASB Classic in Auckland.

Her poor form continued in the Australian Open 2024, as she got knocked out in the opening round of the qualifier.

Thereafter, the 29-year-old found her form and made it to the quarterfinals of the Miami Open and Madrid Open 2024. Though in Rome, She would be eyeing to surpass the QF stage, notwithstanding, she would be facing the top seed.
